Bloomfield, Oct. 16.—Ella Herr, eld
est daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. K.
Herr of thio city, and Harry Johnson,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Johnson,
of Quincy, 111., were united in mar
riage Wednesday evening at 7:30
o'clock at the Methodist Episcopal
church, Bev. J. W. Potter officiating.
The church was well filled with rela
tives and friends. The pulpit was
beautifully decorated with roses, ferns
and oak leaves and presented a pleas
ing sight. W. H. Heighton of Des
Moines played a selection on the cello
with organ accompaniment. The wed
ding march was then rendered by W.
J. Steckel. Eight bridesmaids then en
tered at the east door and advanced up
the center aisle to the altar. They
were followed by little Miriam Herr, as
ring bearer, a sister of the bride, who
was followed by the bride and her fath
er. The bridesmaids parted to left and
right at the altar, forming a semi-cir
cle. The groom, accompanied by Rev.
Potter, advancing from the left met the
bride at the altar, where th'ey were
joined together as man and wife. After
the ceremony a reception was given
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Herr,
where an elegant supper was served to
many relatives and friends. The bride
and groom were the recipients of many
handsome and useful presents. Mrs.
Johnson was reared In Bloom
field, and is a beautiful and acomplish
ed young woman. Her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. E. K. Herr, have long been
prominent in social, religious and busi
ness circles. Harry Johnson has chos
en wisely and well in selecting a bride.
The groom, who is a grandson of Jor
don McCain of this city, is well and
favorably known here, and is a bright
young man, being a graduate of a law
school, but preferred a business call
ing to the practice of law. Many
friends wish them a prosperous and
happy journey through life. The
bridesmaids were: Misses Maud Dab
ney, Edith Steckel, Helen Davies, Paulj
Ine Payne, Inez Greenleaf, Mildred
Steckel of Bloomfield, and Bessie Lor
enz of Kirksville, Mo., and Edith Stick
ney of Moulton.
J. N. Shelton of this city yesterday
morning suffered what appears to have
been a severe stroke of paralysis,
which rendered him practically uncon
scious. Mr. Shelton drove to his farm
south of town early in the morning, re
turning to the city about 11 o'clock.
So far as known there was nothing
wrong until he reached home, when he
suddenly lapsed into an unconscious
condition and appeared to be in a wan
dering frame of mind, although not
wholly disabled. He endeavored to go
into ihe house and attempted to lead
the horse he had been driving into the
house yritli him. Physicians were at
once summoned and made an examina
tion as to his condition, and succeeded
in alleviating his suffering. Mr. Shel
ton is a highly respected citizen and it
is hoped by his friends that he may
be fully restored to his usual health.
